Customer Reviews

Love this watchFor under $200 this is probably the best watch on the market. The dial looks amazing and the bracelet is spectacular as well. I love this watch. It looks nice and I wear it everyday. It isn't so expensive that you cringe with every little scratch or chip. The automatic movement is very accurate. Mine has gained a few minutes over the past couple months. This is within what most consider acceptable. One day when I make more money I might step up to a nice Swiss made watch or I might just supercharge my car with that money and buy another one of these watches!Update: I took away a star. The spring bar on the hollow end is a bad design. The spring bar is also too thin. I have replaced the spring bars four times because they bend so easy. Cheap repair, but annoying. Still love the watch. 4Good Value/Style, but not perfectI bought this watch as a "vacation watch" and it does the trick pretty well, but there are a few complaints that I suppose I find acceptable for the price.GoodThe specs are excellent for the price, it would be hard to find anything better. It has an automatic movement with hand winding and hacking. It's 200M water resistant with a screw down crown. It has the classic diver bezel, which I use frequently enough when on vacation.I like the style a lot. It's a classic diver shape with the classic bezel, but the dial has a more unique and classier/dressier look. The blue color is great and looks great in the sun.The case, dial and bezel all seem well made solid build quality. The bracelet is OK for the price. I have a lighter strap on mine, but when I'm in the mood for a bracelet, this one will be just fine.Not as goodAccuracy is hit/miss and I ended up somewhere just outside of where I would have hoped. I'm getting about 15+ seconds per day, which is not terrible, but I was hoping for <10.Day/Date alignment is not great. I like having day/date for vacation, and I'd rather have them there than not, but they don't have great alignment and don't match the blue of the rest of the face.The bracelet, as I said in the Good section, is OK. It's not great though. It has hollow end links and fit/finish is somewhat short of some of the better bracelets out there. Again, it's not terrible, but if I was planning to wear the bracelet full time I would probably upgrade. For me I'm OK with it since it probably saved me money on the rest of the watch and it's not terrible.With a watch this price, it's often a game of compromises. Hopefully this review helps you decide if the compromises made on the Mako II are ones you're willing to accept. Ultimately for the price I'm pretty happy with this watch, but it does remind you frequently enough that it's not a Rolex, or even a $500-ish diver. I'll suffer the minor complaints since I plan to use it primarily for weekends/vacations. 4Overall a nice watchPros: 1. most important it is accurate- gains 6 seconds in 24 hours which is great for a watch in this price range. 2. It s heavy and feels solid. 3. It s very attractive with the splash of red on the bezel and beautiful blue face that catches the light for some spectacular effects.4. It can be hand wound if you need to do that and the second hand stops to set the time allowing for more accurate time setting. 5. The day and date are easy to read. 6 The band is easy to size - you can do it yourself. 7. No push pins on the case and a screw down crown make it likely that it won t be damaged by recreational swimming or snorkeling.as the manufacturer suggests.Cons: 1. the crown is too small making it hard to unscrew. 2 the watch diameter is a bit small for those used to a big timepiece on their wrist. 3. The bezel is tight and hard to turn. 4. The band catch looks like it will fail before too long with everyday useOverall it s a nice watch and the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion. 4Beautiful watch and crazy-good accuracy!I expected to like this watch, but pictures don't do the dial justice. The sunburst effect is pretty great. Plus, the Pepsi color configuration is spot-on sharp. Orient has done a great job with the details here.What's truly amazing is that after 5 days of wearing, it's only running +9 sec. Not per day, +9 sec total in 5 days. What's even more interesting is that most of that gain happened in the first 2 days. Since then, it has settled in and has been at +9 for 2 straight days! I've seen certified Rolex and Omega watches that didn't do remotely that well. Phenomenal accuracy at this price point.Like others have said, the stainless bracelet is the weakest part of the watch. I think it looks decent for the price, but the hollow end links sort of diminish the experience. I swapped it out for a navy/red striped NATO and it really pops now. So far, I very happy with my purchase. 5You Will Not Find a Better Watch at This PriceI love watches. I am not an expert. I adore this watch. Orient makes some of the finest automatic watches in the world. Especially under $200 dollars. I have a number of automatics, and this is my favorite. In fact this is my favorite watch, period. Now, I don't need a watch so accurate that losing 7 seconds a day is a deal breaker. This is a beautiful watch. the blue face is really nice, much better looking than any photo could show. I also have the black face version. It is just as good, but the blue face is special. And usually out of stock everywhere.If you own more than one automatic watch, the problem is, when you switch watches, you have to shake it a lot to bring it up to speed so it keeps good time. They make automatic winders, as seen near the beginning of the Dr. Strange movie. But, for me, that over-complicates things, in a bad complication way. So, this watch uses the F69 calibre (mechanism) designed by Orient (Seiko owns part of Orient). The F69 has 22 jewels and is capable of self-winding (automatic), hand winding (You turn the crown, yourself.), and hacking (Pull the crown all the way out and the second hand stops). Now, I have some lovely watches, many are Orient, so I hate to see them languish in my watch box. Therefore, I do not wear this beauty every day. Sometimes, by the time I wear it again, it has wound down. All I have to do is unscrew the crown (which has the Orient logo on it...nice) and wind clockwise. So I can get the winding up to speed immediately. The steel bracelet is very nice polished and brushed, and this is a "Dive" watch, good to 200 meters (If you remember to screw down the crown), but not really recommended for real diving. Water sports, snorkeling. Orient makes a Ray watch. It has bars for indices, whereas this watch, the Mako II, has numbers at 6, 9, and 12. Date and day at 3 o'clock. Easy to set. I bought this from Long Island Watch as opposed to buying from Long Island via Amazon, because the blues showed up after a long absence, and Amazon didn't have them. Charge the watch face with a strong light, and it glows nicely in the dark. Very good one-direction bezel. Nuff said. Highly recommended. Snatch up one of these blue ones while you can. 5Five StarsExcellent watch and awesome value. Keeps great time and looks awesome. This is my first dive watch and a perfect "desk diver" for a busy dad like myself. It's a robust, handsome timepiece that looks great at the office or on the weekend on a NATO strap. Wore this to a kids Birthday party and spent the entire afternoon filling water guns and water balloons. The watch performed like a champ. I'm also quite clumsy and have already bumped the watch against furniture and walls several times without a ding or scratch. At this price point, I'm able to shrug off any such damage anyway! My only complaint is that the lume loses charge very quickly and I've found this watch to not be super easy to read in the dark. 5One of the best watch values around. A modern classic and "serious" watch at a low price.These days I am a pretty big watch collector with things at every value level, but I got my start my first "real" watch purchase with an original Orient Mako from Amazon a number of years ago.That original Mako was worn and beaten to within an inch of its life. I wore it everywhere, for all occasions and circumstances, and it showed by the time I gave it away to someone who badly needed a watch. It had been through the ringer, looked like a battlefield artifact, but kept on ticking and keeping very accurate from-the-factory time at about +3s/day.Well, I recently decided that it was time to get a Mako again now that the Mako II is out. Mako II keeps the unique dial styling, narrow bezel, serious water resistance, and basic feel while adding hacking and hand-winding.It was a joy to open this up and see a brand new Mako once again, and this one is also eerily accurate at about the same level, straight from the factory. And I liked it so much now that I am a more serious watch hobbyist that I have invested more in it I have added a domed sapphire crystal and a high-end bracelet from Strapcode with screwed links, solid end links, and a forged chamfer clasp. It now competes in every way with much, much more expensive watches, while having that amazing "Mako look."All of which is to say that this watch is a modern classic and a fabulous value at this price. Stock, it keeps incredibly accurate time for a mechanical watch, swims with the best day-to-day divers out there, runs forever and holds up amazingly well, and looks unique, elegant, and also just a bit aggressive, all at the perfect size (41mm wearing a tad small not too large, not to tiny for just about any wrist). And beyond stock, because of the popularity of the Orient Mako/Ray platform, it is now also a great base for a higher-end "project watch" if you want to go that route.If I was advising someone on a "first serious watch" to spend money on a first watch purchase beyond a Timex I think this would be my absolute strongest recommendation. "Get an Orient Mako II and wear it with joy everywhere and in every circumstance. It'll serve you well." 5Watch is on point!First metal band watch that fits me perfectly. I have a medium size wrist (6.75 ), so I had to remove two pieces. I removed them with a small paper clip and with my pocket knife (to push pins back in). The watch gives you three additional settings for minor adjustments (see pic). The watch itself is perfect. I find myself using the bezel quite often to keep track of time. I have gotten many compliments and has elevated my appearance on dates, shooting range, school, work, strip clubs, tobacco shop, and pretty much anywhere I go. I highly recommend this watch to anyone who wants to up their watch game. 5FINAL review. (How accurate (or not) should I expect it to be?) Final Review. (I have deleted the former interim review for reasons that will be obvious when you read this.)I wrote a long, rambling, informative initial/interim review, and have deleted it in favor of this synopsis, (unlike me, I know).I am returning it.This Orient Mako II is beautiful, it's weighty without being excessively heavy, it s big without being dominating, and the band is gorgeous and polished. Also, it's REALLY good-looking.BUT like Batman, I have one rule. I have one, absolute, immutable requirement for a wristwatch, clock, or other time-keeping device, and that is this:IT. MUST. KEEP. ACCURATE. TIME.I understand this is a MECHANICAL watch, and it would be insane to expect it to match a quartz watch, (as that was what was behind the quartz watch virtually murdering all competition with it before radio-controlled ones hit the scene, and I don t think they ve really caught on, given the diminishing returns you quickly hit once you surpass the accuracy of a 5 dollar quartz watch you might get out of a re-purposed bubblegum machine,) but I measured the amount of error, (after noticing it a day or two after I got it,) to see exactly how much time it was gaining and it turned out, assuming it to be consistent with how it behaves laying perfectly still side-by-side with two quartz watches, of different brands and power sources, all set to the same time, which after a day agreed with each other and the source they were synched to (internet network time,) to within a tiny fraction of a second, (appearing to the naked eye, mine, to be perfectly synchronized,) but which the Orient watch, (being reviewed) disagreed almost immediately.Within about 8 hours, it had pulled between 4 and 5 seconds ahead, (and the import of the other watches agreeing with each other and the source THEY were synched with, is that it makes it hard to argue that maybe the OTHER watch is just SLOW!) corresponding to something like 12 seconds gained PER DAY. That (multiplied out) is a minute in less than a week. (Five days is on average a sixth of a month, (5x6=30) meaning if I kept this watch and kept it wound but otherwise not disturbing it, (possibly screwing up this measurement,) for an entire MONTH, two things would happen:First, it would most likely gain about 6 minutes in that month.Second, the return-window at Amazon .com would close and I d be STUCK with it, a timepiece that I d have to either set BEHIND actual time, so that it would catch up and then PASS the point when it indicated correct time each month, or just mentally CORRECT the time indicated, and I m not willing to do either of those things for a watch that cost north of a hundred dollars, just because it s pretty.I understand not only that it has limitations because it s mechanical, and also that I d have to set it every couple months or so, (the day after the last days of February, April, etc., because those months don t have 31 days,) so I was prepared, in making the decision to buy it, to make adjustments five times a year because this isn t a perpetual-calendar watch and it HAS the day of the month on it, plus two more manual corrections for the stupid abomination that is Daylight Saving Time.BUT with this watch, I d have to adjust it twice as often to keep it from being more than 5 minutes off, and to me, that s simply a bridge too far. When I check the time to see how long I have yet to get to class, I need to know the time displayed is the ACTUAL sticking time, not roughly, approximately what time it is.I was toying with the idea of setting it 5 minutes slow so that it would manage to be WITHIN 5 minutes during the length of time I expected to keep the crown pushed in. BUT as I was running the tests (using two other watches and an iPhone s camera set to Time-Lapse mode,) I noticed two other disturbing things. One, the bezel is REALLY hard to rotate. This COULD be a good thing, but on balance, I think it shouldn t be a fight to move the thing, and also (and for me, THIS was the last straw,) the HOUR HAND IS NOT PROPERLY ALIGNED.This may be splitting hairs, but hear me out. The proper alignment of the hands on a fine timepiece speaks to the attention to detail and quality of the watch. The hour hand, when pointing right at one of the stick hour markers, (I held it level with my eye to make sure it was pointing RIGHT AT IT,) the minute hand was over a minute OFF from 12. Pointing the minute hand to 12 made the hour hand point a tiny bit PASSED the hour. In a watch that sells for that much money, you d think they d be more careful about that. It begs the question, what other little DETAILS did quality control apparently miss? What internal parts aren t quite set right, besides the beat frequency, obviously, since it runs far too fast, even for a mechanical watch, I mean?That s when I noticed the bezel doesn t quite line-up either. Can t get the 12-noon triangle point to point and stop right at 12, which made me wonder if the face itself wasn t simply misaligned. Should I try to get it fixed? No. A watch this expensive and fancy, leaving the factory with two different problems, (being too fast, (gains too much time in a day,) and apparently having either misalignment of either the face or the hands,) is too much to put up with.IF you don t MIND a little inaccuracy, quality control issues, and just want a really pretty, hefty men s watch, this is probably the product for you. As for me, I REQUIRE a timepiece keep reasonably accurate time. I chatted briefly with Amazon .com customer service to try to figure out what the industry-standard is for accuracy in a mechanical watch, but then I thought, no. Whatever the industry might think, a watch that gains several MINUTES a month is not acceptable to ME, not when there are perfectly good alternatives, so I m just going to have to find a decent band for my other watch.(My whole reason for buying this was that my Citizen, which runs just fine, is starting to look a little beaten-up, with faint scratches on the crystal, the case, and a band that could probably stand being replaced. Why not upgrade to a sweet, cool, automatic watch, and go for one that s a little bigger and has a nice, beautiful polished bracelet while I m at it? I reasoned. Well, because it doesn t keep time properly, that s why not, I d say if I could speak to myself a week ago.Now I have to find a box to return this in, because it came in a box in a bubble-wrap baggy, and I don t really like that either, even if it s just for returning something. (Drat... that turned into a pages-long review anyway. Arrrgh... sorry, I was TRYING to keep it short, but apparently I'm not capable of doing that. Sorry. Hope you found this at least remotely useful, and sorry about the length. I also am trying to add a video, but it won't let me at this time so until it's resolved, you're just going to have to take my word on the 'runs too fast' issue. Or not. It's up to you.)EDIT: I *THINK* I have uploaded a video in mov format of the side-by-side I did with these watches:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009WXUKQhttps://www.amazon.com/dp/B000EQS1JW(I bought this elsewhere, and have replaced the band, (on both, actually) but I believe it's the same item.It'll be hard to tell from the speed at which the hands move, but if you pause it anywhere near the beginning, and again anywhere near the end, you'll see how the flanking watches agree with each other to within a second or so, (since each frame is an instant in time, it may sometimes appear that the Citizen is pointing to one second, and the Pulsar another, but even a day later they're basically in perfect synch, and I haven't adjusted either since before this test,) while the Orient Mako II races ahead in a shockingly short 8 or so actual hours of passing time.Again, thanks for reading. Hope you found this helpful. The Orient is again a BEAUTIFUL watch, feels nice, and if you don't mind how it might not keep time, (maybe I just got a bad one and the rest are within a second... all I can do is review the one *I* got so of course, you mileage may vary.) 1Fantastic Dive Watch!I wasn't sure what to expect but I really like this watch. The clean simplicity of the design and fact that it feels comparable to my Seamaster Professional 300 in terms of heft and comfort has earned my respect. It's been keeping great time (+4 secs a day) and that's good enough for me. Forget the watch snobs, there is a reason that Orient watches have such a devoted following. It's not to the level of some of the big boys obviously (not ISO certified, bracelet is average) but it's more than enough for a sub $200 automatic. My only dilemma with purchasing this watch is that now I want more Orient models for my collection. 5
